Week So Far: Wing Chun, Kung Fu, Boxing and Kids Martial Arts Classes – BJJ to come!

Hi guys!

What a great week it has been already for training. We had a fantastic turnout on Monday with the 6pm Wing Chun class fully booked plus the lunch and 7.15pm Kung Fu classes getting off to a great start.

Last night was Boxing. It felt great to hit a moving target! We’re not making touch contact yet as per restrictions, but mitts and shields are allowed.

Today we have a full day of classes here in Redfern! Starting with the Wing Chun lunch class at 12.15, under 10s/Kids Martial Arts class at 4.15pm, more Kung Fu at 6pm and finishing with the 7.15pm class. The 7.15pm Wednesday class will still be very suitable for beginners in Martial Arts, but will focus on drilling the week’s themes, getting a good workout and foundations training.

Class bookings.

If your desired class is booked out, you can now put yourself on the wait list for that class and if a spot becomes available we will let you know. Otherwise, you can come in to do your own training even if a class is full as we do have the space to allow it.

Kid’s in Adult Classes.

Just a bit of housekeeping here guys! Having kids in adult classes poses a number of risks and for the most part we cannot allow this to occur. On the occasions that we do allow it, we will invite you/your child to the class, the child must train with their parent, and consideration will be dependent on size and weight, skill level, age and experience of the child. We appreciate your understanding on this matter. When your child is in their teens please feel free to contact us to see when and under what conditions your child may yet be suitable for attending some adult classes.

Brazilian Jiu Jitsu

BJJ is on tomorrow at 6pm. Due to 1.5m rule the focus will have to be on conditioning and solo drills for Jiu Jitsu and whatever crazy things March has in store for you! It’s even really a good time to have a look at BJJ if you’re initially uncomfortable with the idea of rolling around on the ground with someone, as for the next 2 weeks you won’t be! So jump in and get acclimatised to the ground.

See you on the mat.

Freedom Day For Our Martial Arts Family!

Hi guys,

We are very much looking forward to re-opening tomorrow (freedom day!) with our first martial arts class being Wing Chun Kung Fu at 12.15pm, 6pm, then 7.15pm.

Monday at 6pm is fully booked so please look into either the 7.15pm or midday class. The rest of the week’s classes are filling up too, so please book in asap to secure your spot.

Booking link here.

Only 20 people can participate in each class but we can have almost double that in the kwoon itself. So if you have missed out on booking your preferred class and that’s the only time you can train, you can come in to do your own thing.

Current rules for training under COVID restricted conditions in Sydney are:

  • 1.5m physical distancing – we will be primarily doing solo drills in class. This includes BJJ.
  • Focus mitts, pool noodles and kick shields may be used. Take one set of mitts per person (rather than one set between partners) where possible.
  • Pick your partner and stick with them for the duration of the class.
  • Use your own 16 oz gloves and other protective gear. If you don’t have your own…. WHY??? We do supply protective equipment. Some we currently have in stock, some you may need to pre-order.
  • Clean whatever equipment you used aat the end class please!
  • Sparring classes will need to be cancelled for 2 weeks, sorry everyone…
  • Both doors at the Kwoon entry and the rear door must be open during class times, if you notice a door is closed please open it.
  • Fans need to be on during class times and TURNED OFF once training is over – again if you notice any fans left on at closing time please turn them off or notify the instructor.
  • Face masks do need to be worn whilst training indoors at this stage.
  • Please Temp Check when you arrive (over 37.5 is a high temperature) and check in using the QR code and confirm your class attendance on Clubworx.
  • If you have forgotten your phone only then do you need to manually sign in using the log sheet.
  • Wash your hands regularly and use hand sanitiser provided
  • If you feel unwell please stay at home and get tested.
  • At this stage, if you are 16 yrs or over you need to be fully vaccinated to train.
  • Please email your Vaccination Certificate (screen shots are fine) so that we can note in your membership file that it has been sighted. If you have done this already, thank you! You don’t need to do it again.
  • Where possible, arrive ready to train and/or shower and change back into your civilian clothes at home.
  • Please don’t expect us to bend any rules the government has put upon us, we cannot compromise the Kwoon.

We understand if all of these rules frustrate you, it’s just a matter of time now before we can train with masks off, drill together start sparring again. BJJ tragics… it’s only 4 classes of solo drills and BJJ specific conditioning… you can do it!!!

Thank you everyone!

See you Monday!

Sydney Re-Opens! Wing Chun Kung Fu is BACK on the Agenda!

Greetings and Salutations!

We are super excited with only one week to go to re-open our Sydney doors for training. Classes are already filling up, so dont’ forget to book – pre-booking is required for ALL CLASSES ie Wing Chun, True Boxing, BJJ, Fitness and Kids Martial Arts / Kung Fu Classes.

Kick off is Monday 11th October at 12.15pm for the Wing Chun Lunch Class, followed by Teens Martial Arts at 4.15pm, then Adults Kung Fu at 6pm and 7.15pm for the evening sessions. So get your gear ready!

There has been many questions about when we will be filming the new grading structure, the answer is ASAP. We are looking at starting this Thursday next week. To get it out there as quickly as possible it’s going to be a little rough and ready with not a lot of editing – essentially “for our eyes only”. I’ll keep you posted.

Peak Performers are starting to nail their diet and training . The just finished Hell Week. Congratulations!

I am expecting great things from them.

I will be making an announcement tomorrow regarding our end of year goals such as Gradings, Pre-Comp Training and the Advanced Butterfly Sword Seminar. This will be open to those that have taken up the sword already and can demonstrate a level of proficiency. So a Butterfly Sword revision class will precede the workshop.

Again, dates to be announced.

So get focused and get ready because we have serious ground to make up!

See you on the mat,
Sifu

Hi guys,

It became quite apparent last night that all of the traditional Wing Chun aspects of the coming grading assessments need some work. We have only 3 weeks until the end of year school grading (12th December), that’s a lot of ground to cover in a short period of time.

So tonight’s boxing class will be 50/50, boxing/wing chun.

With the boxing we’ll keep it dirty adding some new tricks to our game that can not just lead into close striking opportunities but the potential for takedowns as well.

With the Wing Chun we’ll keep it strictly Traditional. Chi Sau (or for white belts Trapping Hands), Forms and Wooden Dummy. Boxing purists who are not grading feel free to work on your light/technical sparring skills.

I plan to stick around until late, so if class runs over and you can stay to keep drilling your material, I’ll be here.

Same goes for Thursday after BJJ. Let me know if you would like to come in from 7pm to work on grading material until 8/8:30.

In addition! Peak Performance starts this Sunday! It’s been condensed to 4 weeks so we’re done before the year (and Summer) is out. Get your name down. It’s a fitness and nutrition course that will give you the tools for the duration of your lifetime.

See you then,

Amy

Don’t miss tonight’s boxing class at 6pm. We’re revising last week’s angled defensive and offensive footwork and combos, with some additional combinations and setups added to the mix. Repetition is absolute key to pulling any of this off in real time so don’t miss it and stick around for sparring after class.

Next Wednesday is the first class of the latest Beginner’s Course. This month’s one has been a load of fun and finishing up tomorrow. So if you know anyone who is keen to give martial arts a go but sitting on the sidelines get them to contact us and we’ll get them started.

See you on the mat.
